Cafe with a view

This is a very nice cafe with cracking views across The Solent. It is bright and clean inside and offers a large menu at reasonable prices. There is also outside seating at both the side and front of the building.

Had gone for a bike ride and always stop here for a refreshment break. Also have great ice creams. Lovely scones, fairly priced. Quick and efficient service even when full

We popped in yesterday for sausage and bacon sandwiches before catching the ferry over to Lymington. The sun was shining and we looked out over a calm Solent whilst munching our sandwiches and drinking our coffee. Gossips was almost full but the team served the sandwiches very quickly and they were very tasty. A definite place to visit if you... More

Staff friendly, cafe immaculate with fantastic and reasonably priced food, all cooked fresh to order! Views superb at the end of the pier. Never disappointed - we will be back.

We went there for breakfast. Fast service, friendly staff. Food was great. Had the crab and prawn salad.9 I had the cinnamon hot chocolate and it was really nice. My sister was not too happy with her latte, hence the 4 stars. Other than that, everything was excellent.

Have visited gossips cafe a few times now and on every occasion the staff are rude(apart from Callum), the food isn't special .Funnily enough,I heard another custom er remark that the lady who served him today could do with a lesson in people skills ! I quite agree,a very abrupt young woman.

I'm so sorry that you felt all the staff at my Cafe were rude to you apart from Callum ! Callum is a lovely chap but so are the rest of my crew. It upsets me that you felt this way on your visit. Could you please explain in what way Jayne, Jade, Daniel, Sian, Keith ,Adam, Billy, Shara,Sam Liz,... More

Well patronised given how busy it was and had a really fresh ham sandwich whilst others enjoyed their fresh crab baguettes and sandwiches. Good coffee and tea. All served by cheerful and helpful staff in a clean and tidy cafe overlooking the sea.

Popped in for coffee and cake. Nice and friendly staff and great cake. Sat outside and although not the warmest days its sheltered from the wind and you get a great sea view
